Philippians 2:5-15

NLT 5 You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. NIV 5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: NLT 6 Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. NIV 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, NLT 7 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges ; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, NIV 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. NLT 8 he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. NIV 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-- even death on a cross! NLT 9 Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, NIV 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, NLT 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, NIV 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, NLT 11 and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. NIV 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. NLT 12 Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. NIV 12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed--not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence--continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, NLT 13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. NIV 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. NLT 14 Do everything without complaining and arguing, NIV 14 Do everything without complaining or arguing, NLT 15 so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people. NIV 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe
